Covid Safe Ticket in the Brussels Museums

NEW: From Friday 15 October 2021, the Covid Safe Ticket (CST) will be mandatory for anyone over 16 years of age in order to access the museum. From Saturday 20 October 2021, the mouth mask is mandatory for anyone over 10 years of age.

The Covid Safe Ticket will not be implemented for school groups, regardless of the age of the students in the group. The accompanying persons of these groups (teachers, educators, parents...) will be considered as part of the school group and will not have to present a covid safe ticket either. For these groups, the wearing of a mask (from 12 years old) and the respect of barrier gestures will have to be respected.
